PSG new boy Kylian Mbappe has revealed that he advised international team-mate and close friend Ousmane Dembele over his move to Spanish giants Barcelona.
Mbappe revealed his role in Dembele’s move in an interview with the French version of website ‘Fichajes.com’
“It’s a great opportunity for him. We talked and he asked me what I thought. I told him not to hesitate in joining Barca because it’s a great opportunity. He can become a great player by playing alongside Messi and Suarez,” explained Mbappe.
The striking sensation, who joined his new team-mates for training for the first time today, was full of praise for Dembele, saying: “He’s going to improve so much. His talent is incredible, but at Barca he can take that next step. I hope everyone can achieve their dreams. He already has and he’s a friend of mine. We share the same passion for football.”
The former Monaco man was presented as a PSG player today and he insisted neither he or Dembele are worried about their transfer fees. “All the transfer fee and everything, that has nothing to do with us. What matters to us is what happens on the pitch. We just want to play like we always have have done since we started out as youngsters. It isn’t a question of value or principles, just passion. Feelings, passion and love for football,” he added.
